Floyd County, IA Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA)requires all states and local governments to have up-to-date hazard mitigation plans prepared and approved in order to maintain eligibility for certain types of FEMA Hazard Mitigation Assistance Grants. Mitigation planning is the process of identifying hazards to which jurisdictions are at risk as well as developing actions that will reduce or prevent damages from those hazards.
One of the key components of a hazard mitigation plan is public input during the planning process. Public input from a jurisdiction must be conducted and shown within the Multi-Jurisdictional Plan in order for that jurisdiction to continue to be eligible for certain FEMA hazard mitigation funding. The County's Emergency Management is seeking your input on the hazards for your jurisdiction that will be evaluated as well as your opinions on the types of activities that should be considered to reduce future impacts. Your comments will be considered by your jurisdiction's representatives as the Plan is developed.
Please take a few moments to answer the following questions as soon as possible. A public meeting to discuss the survey results for your community will be scheduled at a later date. Thank you for your participation.
